restoring a nandroid backup after rom upgrade

12 posts in this topic

Posted

hi folks, noob in need of a little help plz :unsure:

so, i had sebs r6 rom on my san fran until last night, when i decided to upgrade to r8.

i first did a backup in clockwork, then did a data & cache wipe also in clockwork.

i then installed the 2 r8 zips via clockwork, and then did a full restore, again via clockwork.

have i done this process correctly? by doing the restore (which took a good 5 mins), i havent restored my phone back to the r6 version have i?

thanks for any help

si

ps. in hindsight, i suppose i only wanted to 'backup' personal settings and things. is a 'full backup' using clockwork maybe overkill? B)

To simplify:

You did a backup --> wiped the data & cache --> installed r8 (you should have stopped here..) --> restored to r6

If you restore, you just put your old r6 version back..

Just do this

wipe data & cache --> install r8 =)

I'd really not recommend keeping your userdata between r6 and r8, they use totally different versions of the firmware, you could end up with all sorts of problems

Or as above, advanced restore all, but not system

kk, thanks guys.

when i did the restore, i thought it would just resore my user data (?), not put me back on to r6! lol :unsure:

so in doing the wipe cache/data > install r8, is there any way to retrieve my calendar entries, angry birds progress, email settings etc, or do i just have to start afresh with everything?

thanks guys B)

Use titanium backup for this.

>calendar entries

I find it's best to keep contacts and the calendars on gmail that way it's there no matter which rom.

If you want to backup your SMS messages, I found a nice little free app called 'SMS Backup & Restore'.

Tricky name, eh? :unsure:
